  • I'd suggest you read this...and if you've already done so (and since had the problems you've mentioned), just let us know what problem(s) you're experiencing. Once you've got the principles down pretty well, …
  • Yeah...pretty much think the plateau stage can fluctuate on where it comes into play. I'd only say to keep an eye on it now with the 212 dome...most times I read that these lower (sub 250) temps can cause the Egg to sometimes fizzle-out. It'll…
  • I normally do butts at 250° as long as you're dome therm is 'on' (calibrated), I can't see that it's cooking 'too fast'. I don't think you have any problems... Also, not sure if youve gone through the plateau stage yet (where temp c…
  • As others say, when they're meaty...they're great!

  • Looks super! When the coast is clear....make the run for it! Nice!
  • Looks wonderful, Molly! That last the money shot!
  • Thanks Wess and Chris! Ended up at Urban BBQ Company, in Rockville. Very cool, hip little spot, with a line 10 deep the whole time (good sign of course). Would suggest it for anyone in the area. P.S. I'll say this area is upscale. When ri…

  • could actually contribute to the forum with tips/recipes/help in general.
  • Hmmmm.... After reading this thread, I now better understand why I've been frequenting another forum more in the last month or so.
  • I was lucky enough to get a Block from EenieMeenie in the elfster echange. What an amazing gift! NEED to get on this very soon. I've also read you can use 'frozen/chilled' for sushi, sorbet. It's sort of a multi-functional conversation coo…
  • They look SUPER! Going to need to so my recipe in the dutch. Thanks for sharing!
  • End results: For some reason, the slightly larger Butt took much longer to cook. Ended up being around 17hrs. Not sure if I injected this one more….but just took a while longer. I pulled the 1st Butt that came off the Egg. Really wonderfu…

  • Steve, Fab said to be MSG Free. Although I've been advised that looking at the ingredients, there is some forms of msg in it. I didn't purchase it becauce of the MSG aspect, but rather that Fab was at SummerFest in New Holland, PA th…
  • Wonderful looking Rib-Eyes there! Great 1st cook...and thanks for sharing!
  • Great point! On the recent batch I froze; I oiled, then wrapped in plastic wrap (getting air out as best possible), and then put the balls inside a ziplock freezer. The few that have been used ths far are great...and without the dreaded skin. …
  • I woke up this morning at 4am, looked at pit temp and it was 256. Went back to sleep. Then woke up at 9am, and it's 255. I think this is really the testament to having the Egg 'stable' before cooking on it. I had it at 250 for at least 1.5hrs.…

  • You're fine with freezing them. Last weekend, Fred gave me the opportunity to attend a 2-student master pizza making class he gave in the kitchen at his store. This was based on Fred's pizza experiments, coupled with what he learned at Tony Ge…
  • Update from 12:45am. 1 hr. 45 min. into the cook. My 'tend the Egg' snack.... :evil: Finally....cocktail by the bunny.
  • Will do! Yeah....the package is different than the ones we've got there in the last year+. Says 'no' processing. But for 7.5#ers, they had a different shape to them. Maybe it's nothing.....but hopefully it's better! :woohoo:
  • Very, very sorry for your loss. In addition to your wonderful cooks, I as the others always enjoyed seeing Jake proudly perched nearby. Pet or person, an established relationship is one to be cherished. I hope your fond memories will help you…
  • I believe most would tell you 195 internal. Are you foiling/wrapping and then rest?
  • Nice Molly! Any idea how much pulled pork that resulted in? Insert Sir-Mix-Alot voice... I like Multiple Butts and I cannot lie... :woohoo: Here is 4. I think it was 38#.
  • Looks really grand! I was eyeing up those loins at Sam's tonight. But opted for my usual Butts. Thanks for sharing!
  • Lookin Killer!

  • I've been active on Twitter for a few months now, have never seen any activity from either of those 2 BGE handles. I follow them both, so I'd know if something came through. I don't like Facebook at all, but twitter is a great resource for inf…
